Hi,

I collected some driftwood, suspected to be eucalyptus, from the beach. It was soaked for 2 wks in tap water, 48hrs in bleach water (1:10 parts), 5 days in heavily conditioned water and sun dried between soakings. Please note the wood has small holes in it; they look like they could be from insects.

After 5 days in an aquarium, I noticed a white fluffy fungus looking material growing on the wood; specifically, it was growing over air bubbles released by the previously mentioned holes. Below are images and water parameters 5 days after adding the driftwood.

What is this white material? Is it and/or the wood cause for concern? Should any action be taken?

PH>=7.6
NH= 0ppm
NO2= 0ppm
NO3= 5ppm





Thanks,
Matt

Thank you rgr4475 & Louie13 for the input. Next water change I will try and clean it off, however as of now I will not worry too much. All fish are acting normally; actually, they seem happier with the added cover.

Thanks,
Matt
